Brown Sugar Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Here's a new one for you folks!  Joe is headed out Turkey Hunting this weekend with the boys, so I thought I'd whip up some cookies in the hopes that it would be a fair trade for a Turkey Dinner Sunday night! (Fat chance, "Turkey hunting" secretly means "boozing in the Hunting Cabin").

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking soda
dash salt
2 cups flour
1 bag chocolate chunks

Mix together your butter and sugar until well blended, adding in your vanilla and egg next.

Next, add in your dry ingredients, remembering to scrape down the sides of the bowl when you need to.  Also, check for approval from the peanut gallery.

Finally, add in your chocolate chunks.

Roll into tablespoon sized balls, and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack, then pound like 5 of these bad boys with a glass of milk.

Happy Baking!
